Sometimes it’s hard being a man trying to please his wife for Valentine’s Day. Well, a Hartford, Kentucky, man has gone viral after his wife revealed that he got her turnips instead of tulips for Valentine’s Day.

Nina Harris tells WPVI-TV that she told her husband Allan the day before the romantic holiday that she would like some tulips. “He wasn’t paying attention,” she recalled. “He just said ‘Yes, I know.'”

Nina ended up receiving a bunch of turnips in a bucket that read, “I love you.” He has since given her some actual tulips, candy and balloons. Fortunately for Allan, Nina says that she likes root vegetables.
